The Morganist Empire of Greater Pittsburgh is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Cassandra of Morgan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.243 billion Pittsburghers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pittsburghian economy, worth 637 trillion Morgan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 196,633 Morgan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Greater Pittsburgh, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Pittsburghian mussels the biggest in The North Pacific, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Pittsburgh's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Antitheistic-Morganism.

Greater Pittsburgh is ranked 47,373rd in the world and 2,603rd in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,481.4 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
